My challenge is this: sum up the entire Broken Saints in one word. No cop out "masterpiece" or "artwork", but a truly thought out word.

Mine is zeitgest (spirit of the times). In no other age is this so applicable, as the series speaks largely of the dangers of modernized "civillization" and the arrogance of technology.

As in: "What's Broken Saints about?" "Us."

Transification. (Transformation + fantastic +...ation)

EDIT: Wait, does it have to be a dictionary word?

How about "insomnia"?
How many people stayed up eons beyond when they should've gotten at least a little sleep with their eyes on bloody fire against their computer screens?

"We haven't slept in lifetimes and our thousand eyes are burning."



Anyway, in my limited vocabulary, I would have to pile drive my head into a desk before I could find the right single word to describe BS.

I am not worthy.
